This class will focus on the fundamentals of Fusion 360 CAM software for both new and current users, by understanding workflows in the CAM workspace through job setups creation, stock definition, and work coordinate systems alignment. We will demonstrate how simple and easy it is to use Fusion 360 CAM by applying 2D toolpath operations with geometry selections that drive them and learning how geometry-based toolpaths can be applied using 3D operations. Class attendees will learn how to verify toolpaths with full stock simulation, create setup sheets, and postprocess G-code for their machines. These foundational concepts will help new users understand the benefits of truly integrated CAD/CAM using Fusion 360 to seamlessly update all toolpaths when CAD revision or design changes are required. This class will help you learn how to make anything with Fusion 360.
